Bangladesh’s fate in the 2019 World Cup is currently hanging by a thread. With a couple of victories and three losses, Mashrafe Mortaza and Co are currently placed sixth in the points table with five points. The Tigers are next set to lock horns with Afghanistan on May 24 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. They lost to Australia by 48 runs, but the performances of their batters came as a massive positive for them.
The Afghans, on the other hand, gave India a run for their money in the erstwhile encounter and lost by 11 runs. Nevertheless, Gulbadin Naib’s men were showered with praises for their resolute show. The Afghans are winless after six matches and they have nothing, but pride to play for. In ODI cricket, Afghanistan has defeated Bangladesh in three games and an exciting game seems to be in the store.
Here is the guide to select the Captain and Vice-Captain for Dream11 Fantasy:
Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib Al Hasan has by far been the best all-rounder in the World Cup. Having scored 425 runs in five matches at an average of 106.25, the Jessore-born has weaved his magic with the bat in hand. Going by the form he is in, he would’ve been disappointed after getting out on 41 versus the Aussies. With the leather, he may wish to be a little more penetrative, having picked up five wickets.

There’s no doubt about Soumya Sarkar’s talent with the bat. However, the southpaw hasn’t quite done justice to his potential, having scored 102 runs in the mega event at an average of 21.60. After the 42 he made versus South Africa earlier this month, he hasn’t done anything of sorts. In a lot of times, he has got into the double-figures and it’s high time that he converts the starts.

In the first five games, barring the four-wicket haul versus Sri Lanka, Mohammad Nabi hadn’t had the best of outings in the World Cup. But against India, he was in a completely different zone. Not only did he dismiss the in-form Virat Kohli, but also chipped in with 52 priceless runs under severe pressure while chasing. He’ll have to replicate something similar if the Afghans are to get their first win.

From a personal perspective, Gulbadin Naib was a tad lacklustre to start his campaign. But in the last two games, he has gathered momentum. The decision to promote himself to open has worked out well as he has scored 37 and 27 in the two encounters. The 28-year-old picked up five wickets those matches, though he needs to work a bit more on his economy.

Rashid Khan had a terrible day against England and he became the most expensive spinner in ODI cricket. However, he made a stupendous comeback versus India and conceded only 38 runs in his spell of 10 overs. Moreover, he got the wicket of MS Dhoni at a stage when the latter could’ve upped the ante. He can be a brute force to reckon with for Bangladesh.

Mushfiqur Rahim got his maiden World Cup century against Australia and his confidence would’ve sky-rocketed after the knock, though it came in a losing cause. Overall, the Bogra-born wicketkeeper-batsman has notched 244 runs at an average of 61. The Tigers depend a lot on the 32-year-old and he’ll be keen to help his team to their third victory of the mega event.
